Eminem & Vybz Kartel – White Trash Party
Since storming the world stage with his footwear fetish anthem, ‘Clarks‘, Vybz Kartel is rapidly asserting himself as the world’s biggest dancehall star. The only man challenging Vybz’ all conquering dominance of Jamaica’s airwaves is the recently incarcerated Buju Banton, who’s tracks have been gaining heavy rotation since the reggae singer went down for conspiracy to supply cocaine two weeks ago.
Of course, Vybz’ success has not been overnight. He’s been working tirelessly in the reggae underground for nearly two decades and has already won several of the scene’s highest accolades including a string of EME awards (the Jamaican version of the Grammys). With a work rate that would put prolific rhymers like Lil’ Wayne to shame and a set of tattoos that make even the most ghetto rappers look conservative: it’s no wonder that Vybz is quickly becoming a permanent feature in the lucrative world of US hip hop. After collaborating with the likes of Jay-Z, Rihanna, Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes, M.I.A and Pharrell, Vybz’ latest hook up has him working with Eminem. The result is ‘White Trash Party’, a furious trade off of blows between two extremely characteristic rappers. On it Kartel demonstrates his deep patois laced rhymes and his slightly weird singing voice – which could one day see him pitched as a cooler version of Akon.
